Poll: Why is Andrew Cuomo backing Joe Biden?

The governor is all in on the former vice president’s White House bid.
April 30, 2019

Despite the rumors that Gov. Andrew Cuomo might run for president himself in 2020, he appears to be going all in on Joseph Biden’s bid for the White House.

With the former vice president and senator making his candidacy official this month, several outlets have reported that Cuomo will do all he can to support Biden, the early frontrunner. CNBC reported that Cuomo would “open his formidable fundraising network to Joe Biden,” while sources told The Wall Street Journal that the governor would be “far more involved in helping Joe Biden’s presidential campaign than he was in supporting Hillary Clinton’s and Barack Obama’s White House runs.”

Why such staunch support? In this week’s reader poll, we ask you to weigh in.

What should Cuomo have done?
